Josh Linkner presentation at AADI Summit: David Elfanbaum

Here is a sketchnote by David Elfanbaum

He wrote:

This is based on a great presentation on innovation by Josh Linkner at last week's Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit (AADI). I created it with Sketchbook Pro on a Surface Pro 3. Although I still do an initial live draft of sketchnotes, when I plan to share them with a wider audience, I've started going back and refining the originals. I'm also straying from my original "purist" approach by using reference photos for some of the illustrations.

 Excellent structure, David!

Scrum Alliance CSPO Sketchnotes: Mike Doherty

Today we feature the work of Mike Doherty .

He wrote:


I've always been a doodler, but recently I've consciously started creating a few sketchnotes here and there alongside trying to improve my graphic facilitation.  I can't 'draw', but I find the process fun and I've also found it has helped me improve my handwriting which has always been terrible!   Although I did have my first comment at this session how neat they were; so practise is paying off!
I was at a 2 day Certified Scrum Product Owner course in London hosted by Scrum Alliance and the excellent  Mike Cohn so I made a commitment to myself to take sketchnotes for the entire two days during the sessions.  I usually limited myself to one page for an hour talk or so, and in the end I walked out with 8 small A6 pages.  A mixture of key points and items that I think I need to follow up.
I've settled on these the past few months so I can't get into too much detail, thus forcing me to capture only the key points:
Pental Liquid Ink V Sign Pens (Black and Blue for emphasis)  My current favourites.
Orange Bloc Rhodia No 13 (I love the grid to assist me in being a bit neater and that it can fit in a blazer/suit pocket to take 

Don't miss the whole set of sketchnotes.

I love the use of color to highlight concepts and how these sketchnotes are informative while being "essential" and very readable.

Such a good job, Mike!
